NUSU Student Media

NUSU student media is the go-to place for all your downtime entertainment. We have three branches to our student media; the newspaper, our student radio and our production team. All students can get involved and no previous experience is necessary. Find out more below.
 

How are we run?

Overseen by our sabbatical officer, the Editor of the Courier, our student writers and editors produce our weekly 40-page newspaper and maintain the website. Anyone who is a student at Newcastle University can write for the Courier. Whether you want to review of your favourite film, comment on worldwide issues, update students about what’s happening on campus or hold your university to account with some investigative journalism, there’s space in the Courier for everyone’s voice to be heard. The Courier has been numerous awards over the years - most notably, Student Publication of the Year in the Guardian Media Awards. 

You don’t need any prior experience to be part of the Courier, just turn up to one of our meetings, follow our social media channels (which can be found below) or contact us to find out more about how you can get involved.

Who are we?

NUTV is NUSU Media’s high-action and fast paced television branch. Founded in 2010, the youngest of the three branches has certainly taken leaps and bounds in progress, committing itself to producing both on-demand and live broadcasts throughout the academic year. NUTV aims to be a platform to allow as many students as possible, regardless of their academic or personal background, the chance to experience the world of TV production.

We produce content covering current affairs, entertainment, music, student talent and lifestyle, sports, and more! Have an idea for a brand new show? Come and make that show a reality, as we’re always looking for new show concepts! NUTV also aims to help bridge connections into the industry for anyone looking to pursue a media career. We are a NaSTA affiliated station, allowing us access to the workshops and industry trips the Association runs throughout the year, including the annual conference in Easter.

We also have local connections with the Royal Television Society and individuals who have worked with local and national TV broadcasting studios. Whether you want to present in front of camera, direct and produce from behind the scenes, flex your editing muscles, or write and develop ideas, check out NUTV.
